Mark Warner To Give Democratic Convention Keynote Address

He's not even a sitting Senator (yet), but Democrats have selected former Virginia Governor Mark Warner to give the keynote address at their rapidly approaching convention.

Way to go Mark!

Here's the campaign's announcement from late last night (if we'd had our blackberry on while watching the women's gymnastics, we could've beat everyone to the punch on this one!):

It's late, but I couldn't wait to share with you some exciting news. Governor Warner has been asked to address this year's Democratic National Convention in Denver as the primetime keynote speaker on Tuesday night.

According to Obama campaign manager David Plouffe, "Mark Warner is not afraid to challenge the status quo to bring people together and get things moving. It's that kind of spirit and innovation that resulted in his selection as keynote speaker on a night when the Convention program will focus on renewing America's economy."
